Oooo youíve said the ďRĒ word I donít like....

Ok thereís a few:

1. You can have your camera on or you donít have too. There is no being forced to have your camera on. Itís totally your choice. We understand everyoneís comfort level is different.

2. There is no recording or screenshots To take place. We want people to feel comfortable.

3. You are able to read a poem of your own, a song of your own, a poem by another DU member (with their permission only) or a famous poem.

4. Please donít interrupt people when theyíre reading. It can be nerve wracking as it is.

5. Be wholly yourself, have fun, and donít be a dick


Rule 5: is my life motto...

... Yes we have one other lurker in our midst also so youíll be in company

You donít have to read a poem of your own. Youíre able to read a poem by another member (with permission) or even a famous poem that you just like

If you could shoot across your Skype details I can add you to the call if you would like

I donít have a problem with reading my own poem, itís the reading anything at all!

And frick, itís been years since Iíve used Skype. Iím going to have to figure out my account info or create a new one and then get back to you.

Well, no pressure to read. Itís just worth remembering we are all in the same nervous boat

Lovely stuff on the Skype deets, just send them over when/if you would like too.

Then I have seriously miscalculated my time zone. Lol please just tell me that my phone will make a noise and let me know that someone on Skype is calling me or something like that!
